The little boy who made arabesques - Michel CaraboeufSold by Mucem Museum
DescriptionThe hero, who is never named, is a little 8 year old boy who is passionate about the roller skates he received for his birthday: as soon as he can, he goes skating on La Plaine, a lively square full of children playing and adults strolling around, in Marseille.
There he dreams, escapes, lives in his imaginary world. But real life is never far away, and every little event turns into a big adventure: buying a shirt in a department store, discovering the shelves of a bookstore, a stormy afternoon spent alone at home...
Until one fine day in May 1968, everything changes: the little boy, who had gone skating alone, finds himself caught up in a demonstration that dazzles him. He forgets to go home and is finally found by his worried mother. From now on, he will not be allowed to go skating alone...
A part of his childhood ends, but without regret.
